this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scien

if they except the idea i heard out of vice president joe biden that he thinks that is as much as four years away before iran has a nuclear. we cannot tolerate that and let that happen. but i do not have my hands and the intel that tells us when it happens. here's what i said -- i would recommend to the president that he say, mr. ahmadinejad -- this will be from good intel, when they will get there. that will send a message, we will work so that you can save face as an individual and nation, we will do it diplomatically, but we will deconstruct your nuclear endeavor. if not, when that day arrives in the calendar, it is over. we cannot let them get a nuclear weapon. >> mrs. vilsack, president obama has approved the use of unmanned drones to fight terrorists around the world -- that concerns some members of your party. are you concerned about that? >> not particularly. i think it is part of a strategy i am talking about -- there are a lot of different things that we need to be able to do. there are people who will be able to decide when it is the best time to use drones or any of the other tools we

democratic. the scranton may be best known. joe biden is from there. hillary clinton's father was born there. everyone starts to campaign in scranton in one way or another. in sitcoms, scranton is a town. they have an extra gene for politics. host: we have a phone line set aside for those of you who live in pennsylvania. we want to hear from you as we focus our series here on the key battleground states. terry madonna, since 1988, pennsylvania has gone democratic. last time they vote republican was for george herbert walker bush. why? guest: 2 when the suburban voters, as i pointed out a moment ago, they come out of philadelphia with a huge edge and that is the largest municipality in the state with a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia in the out of thet's say southeast by 650,000 votes, it's pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the stage even if republicans win the infamous "t" we referred to. the other thing to remember about pennsylvania is that it is dominated by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia cove
in youngstown, ohio, for tomorrow. president clinton and vice president biden will still be there. the president is not going to be there. he has an event tomorrow morning in florida but he's not going to ohio. he's going back to the white house. as for mitt romney, we're watching his campaign very closely. he has a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it becaus

biden is from there and hillary clinton, her dad was born there. eveready starts to campaign in scranton one way or another -- "the office," said, scranton, a town, voters have the gene for politics. host: a phone line to set aside for those of you who lived in pennsylvania. we want to hear from you as we focus on the key battleground state. terry madonna, since 1988, pennsylvania has gone democratic, the last time voting for republican bienick george herbert walker bush. why? guest: the democrats have been able to win suburban voters. , at a philadelphia with a huge edge -- the largest municipality in the state, a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia and the suburbs, the four counties in lehigh valley -- out of the southeast by 650,000 votes, is pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the state, even if the republicans win that infamous t that we often refer to. the other point to remember about pennsylvania is that is dominated for the most part by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia covers 40% of the vote
changes a little bit. however, biden did the youngstown event today. it was still pretty partisan and there were tough hits on romney but i do think from the two principals, the surrogates will be pretty tough but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an hour, by the way, from making landfall. it's out there coming close. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there you saw it. did you see that crane going down in manhattan? it's a very powerful tropical storm and an hour from making landfall, sandy is. you just saw a partially collapsed crane there that we got on film and it hangs precariously. rehema ellis is live at the scene. this has become iconic with what is happening with the situation. >> reporter: it really has. the crane is starting
the final stretch. romney and vice president biden have canceled weekend rallies in virginia. >>> and the businessman who sued facebook founder mark zuckerberg, for half of the company. he's been arrested on fraud charges. authorities say he fabricated and destroyed evidence to support his claims. >>> and the seven-time tour de france winner, lance armstrong, will not be awarded the award -- it was stripped from him. it will not be awarded to any other riders. the governing body will remain blank for all of the years that armstrong had one. the committee also said that armstrong should return his prize money. >>> finally, an unexpected guest at a wendy's in kentucky. a deer came crashing through the door, shattering the glass. the deer ran around the restaurant before leaving through a window. there were no other customers inside at the time. >>> it's time, now, for the weather and back to ginger zee. ginger? >> even though the eastern third of the nation is consumed with tropical storm sandy talk, there's a lot going on. we have to get to the cold in the middle of the nation
affected the race for the white house. governor mitt romney and vice president joe biden each cancled planned weekend appearances in virginia. ron is traveling with mitt romney. >> reporter: all eyes on sandy, including these two presidential campaigns. over the next ten days, expect to see the president and governor romney hit these battleground states hard, including ohio, perhaps the most critical of them all. it could ultimately decide who wins this race. yesterday, governor romney held two events in the buckeye state, including a rousing rally with paul ryan last night in north canton, ohio. the campaign says about 8,000 people showed up for that event, braving some pretty brisk temperatures outside last night. now, he still has some work to do here. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50 to 46, four points. that's about half of what the lead was just a few weeks ago. governor romney has chipped into that lead, but he still has some ways to go. for the president, he just wrapped up a 5,000-plus-mile barn storming tour. he took the day off the trail, spent a lot of time doing
's changes, the storm had already altered the campaign travel calendar, if you will. vice president biden cut short a new hampshire campaign swing. and instead diverted to ohio. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is let this campaign get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> the tuesday schedule is also in jeopardy. romney canceled a stop in new hampshire. the president canceled one in colorado. this morning fema director craig fugate said preparations are in place to respond to the storm. >> we've been getting ready for the last couple days. i guess the biggest question with sandy is exactly where and how much damages are we going to see. we've got teams basically all the way from down in north carolina where it was earlier impacting the outer banks all the way to maine. we have teams in states as far inland as west virginia. we've been moving generators. we've been moving basic supplies that we would need after the storm. so it's a large response area, but we also have a lot of good teams with
't guarantee first responders will get to them. >> i know we checked with bo biden's office because he was called up in the national guard, he was a major in the national guard, be had active duty in iraq left the campaign in anticipation of this on saturday as a main surrogate, also campaigning with his dad and now he has been called up. how many have been activated in the national guard? >> 300 people so far. we may end up doubling that. we've got a terrific national guard including our attorney general who's just a great public servant here in delaware. they're doing great work. some of them are providing medical support in some of the shelters. we've opened up a number of shelters across the state. have hundreds of people in them now. but they're providing evacuation support as well. >> now, number of routes have been closed. one, of course, a main closure, route 1 between bethanie beach and dewey beach. what about exit strategies for those who have to leave? >> there are as you say, that one, we knew would be closing. actually closing it yesterday morning. and so there are evacuat
their ohio campaigning for tomorrow as well. joe biden also canceled campaigning. how do they handle this and then you've got the image of mitt romney doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same place they were going to hold a campaign event, they say they're making collections for hurricane storm relief. chris cizilla, first to you, we checked with the red cross, the red cross said they're always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. they always tell people please donate money. we have our own packagers and wholesalers and distribution system and to now get niece canned goods from the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used clothes they have to clean, they can't go directly to victims what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. it does seem like a thinly veiled -- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and t
bill clinton and vice president biden after getting a blast of wind on the tarmac praised obama's presidential decision. >> he got up this morning and called me, said i have to go back, the storm is getting out of hand. i got to handle it. i said, mr. president, that is the right call. >> reporter: romney squeezed in ralliesen avon lake, ohio, and davenport, iowa, before pressing pause on this campaign. >> hopefully your thought and prayers will join with me and people across the country when you think about folks that are in harm's way. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> this is the closest election since modern polling began in 1936. with the candidates averaging a 48% to 48%, tie, since september. and in the perfect storm of an election comes this storm, slicing a path through battleground state, north carolina, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. potentially impacting early voting. and who knows where the recovery from the storm will be one week from tomorrow. thus the candidates are trying to project leadership. >> speaking today with the national weather servi
of the president's top allies vice president joe biden and former president bill clinton kept up the fight against governor romney. focusing on an ad the romney campaign is airing in ohio that claims mr. obama -- >> sold chrysler to italians who were going to build jeeps in china. >> it is an absolutely false assertion! >> reporter: now we will see the president today at some point to talk about the storm. overnight he called new york governor andrew cuomo and new jersey governor chris christie and new york mayor michael bloomberg. he also signed disaster declarations for new york and new jersey. as for the campaign well it is still on hold. the president, however, remains visible. still with the race as close as it is, there is going to be a lot of catching up to do in the last few days before the election. and nobody really knows how that's going to work. >> one week from today we will know. >>> governor mitt romney shifting his schedule because of the storm. jan, hello. >> reporter: hello, gayle. governor romney canceled all of his campaign events today. he had se
